MaxGalleria Image Slider – QuickStart



Getting Started

The Image Slider addon is now included with MaxGalleria Pro and no additional installations are necessary. NB: Support for our individual addons will no longer be available from the 1st May 2022.

Activating the Image Slider add-on will allow you to use the Image Slider template in your image galleries.


  • Gallery Skin: Standard, Silver, Kitt, Ghost and Black are the five main options for gallery skin that will adjust how the slider image looks as well as the dots that appear below the slider.
  • Slider Captions Enabled: Enable or disable if the captions appear on the main slider.
  • Slider Image Click Enabled: If enabled, a visitors click can open several different options, found below. Default setting is “disabled.”
  • Slider Image Click Opens: End result of a user clicking the slider image. Options are Image Page (Attachment Page), Image Link (the link you’ve set for that image) and Original Image (direct URL of image).
  • Slider Effect: The Image Slider uses Nivo Slider for slide effects and you can choose from Box, Fade, Fold, Slice, Random or Slide. Each of those has a directional option as well to give you maximum control of the transition.
  • Slider Animation Speed: From 0.1 to 2.0 seconds, select the amount of time the animation will take from slide to slide.
  • Slider Slideshow Speed: From 0.5 to 10.0 in increments of 0.5, select the amount of time that each image in the slider will show before transitioning to the next image.

Gallery Description

For each gallery you can create a description that discusses your gallery or adds extra information for anyone viewing the gallery. If enabled, you can choose to put the description above or below your gallery (default is above).

Advanced Options

MaxGalleria allows you to load your own styles and scripts if you want to add anything to the options MaxGalleria already provides. Simply use the URL of the stylesheet or JavaScript file, click “Enabled” and the scripts and styles will be loaded after the necessary MaxGalleria files.

From here you can also reset all of the gallery options to the defaults by checking the Reset option. The action cannot be undone and you will lose any previously saved options for that gallery.
